Lebanese "Naksa" rallies canceled

From AP:
Palestinian organizers in Lebanon who had planned a march to the border with Israel early next week say they have canceled it.

The organizers say that Sunday's planned march marking the 1967 Arab-Israeli war's anniversary would be replaced by strikes across all 12 of Lebanon's Palestinian refugee camps.
Now Lebanon adds:
On Friday, the event was cancelled because the army had yet to grant protesters permission to approach the border, possibly as a result of the violence at last month’s rally there.

I had reported that this seemed likely yesterday.

Meanwhile....strikes in Lebanon to protest Israel?

Works for me. They can do that every day. I'm sure it will help the Lebanese to love their Palestinian Arab "guests" even more than they already do.
